The health and environmental impacts associated with traditional methods of household cooking and heating have driven the development and dissemination of many types of improved cookstoves and fuels. However, adoption rates, household cooking practices, and even household ventilation can directly influence the magnitude of real-world impacts. Given the highly contextual nature of a technological intervention's impact, monitoring multiple household metrics over an extended period of time is necessary to fully understand performance in a given context.
